    Default Tyres

    Nice day today, eventually, so took the 348 to have its tyres checked as the rears were losing air. It was the valves, checked the rims all ok. Tyres refitted and both found with eggs on the inner wall! Ouch. Oh well......"Dear Santa two Pzero asimmetricos please."
    It will be another thing off the list though.

    Good to know at least.

    Be careful when you order new tyres. You might find that you get two prices for what appear to be the same tyre. One if for the 456 (heavy load rated) and the cheaper is for 348. If you call Pirelli direct they are very helpful on the phone; if their website is rubbish!!

    Default Tyres

    Thanks, I will take note. As you say, good to know. They looked perfect on the outside, and didn't balloon until near full pressure.They were old though, but suspect pothole damage.

    I've gotten into the habit of not running tyres more than three years old, even if there is plenty of tread, it's just not safe, especially with the performance of modern cars.

    I've thrown away plenty of good tyres in the last few years but it's worth the expense for peace of mind.
